Cherin M. says, ""I have been delighted to know Jo Ann as a Coaching Colleague through the Global Association of Holistic Psychotherapy and Coaching for the past year. Within moments of meeting her-- I could sense how deep her commitment to helping individuals on Soul Level Transformational is. Through the year-- I have also gotten to learn how Jo Ann's commitment to transforming those in recovery is fully supported by her own life long journey of soul level growth, life experiences, by her extensive career in Psychotherapy and her own profound transformation. She has lived the path of change-- and I see no better individual to help assist those on the journey through recovery and back to the soul-- and away from the patterns and hardships of life through old conditioning. I am excited for Jo Ann and all of her future clients-- they are fortunate to have her knowledge, wisdom, expertise and her truly passionate committed support." Cherin R. - DETROIT, MI" Read more

Your marriage counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

Marriage counseling costs $120 to $250 per session for in-person therapy or $90 to $230 per session for virtual counseling. Prices depend on the length of the session, the therapist's experience, the counseling method, and your location. Prices are highest in major metropolitan areas like New York, Boston, Seattle, and San Francisco.

Marriage counseling is typically not covered by insurance unless it's prescribed by a medical doctor due to a billable diagnosis, such as depression or bipolar disorder. Contact your insurance provider to confirm your coverage details.

Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a solution-focused type of therapy that helps couples overcome struggles, resolve conflicts, and improve their relationship.

In your first session, you and your partner will discuss your relationship issues and goals with the therapist. The therapist will often ask questions to clarify your problems and concerns. The therapist then develops a goal-oriented plan for the upcoming sessions.

The therapist may use one or several methods and techniques to help you and your partner work towards resolution, and may give you homework to do alone or together in between sessions.

Marriage counseling works best when both partners actively participate and work together on the relationship during and in between sessions. Research shows current marriage counseling techniques like the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) have a 70% to 75%+ success rate.

Marriage counseling is often worth the cost even for happy couples. Benefits of marriage counseling include:

  • Improved communication
  • More compassion and acceptance between partners
  • A better understanding of your needs and how to express them
  • A deeper connection with your partner
  • Improved intimacy

Marriage counseling lasts 3 to 6 months, depending on your needs and the issues you're hoping to resolve. A couple seeking therapy to resolve one small issue may benefit from fewer sessions, while a couple considering divorce may need 6+ months.

Weekly therapy sessions typically last 45 to 90 minutes. Most counselors recommend committing to one session per week for at least three months, as becoming comfortable with the therapy process and opening up to the therapist and each other takes time.

Look for a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), as most counselors without this specialty have only introductory training in couples therapy. Follow these tips to find the best marriage counselor near you:

  • Discuss your preferences and goals with your partner.
  • Explore the different relationship therapy methods and look for a counselor certified in your preferred method. Two popular, science-backed methods are the Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT).
  • Ask for recommendations from your medical provider.
  • Read counselors' reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Confirm the counselor accepts your insurance or offers a sliding-scale rate.
  • Ask about telemedicine and virtual visit options.
  • Schedule an initial consultation to make sure you're happy with the counselor's communication style and empathy.

Ask these questions to help you choose a marriage counselor who will help you and your partner achieve the best results:

  • What training and certifications do you have?
  • Do you primarily work with couples?
  • What therapy modalities and techniques do you use?
  • How long are your sessions?
  • How many sessions do you think we need?
  • What is a typical session like?
  • How do you measure progress?
  • Do you offer discounted packages, payment plans, or sliding scale rates?
  • What should we do to prepare for the first session?
  • Do you assign reading or homework between sessions?

Reviews for Cicero marriage counselors

Recent success stories from people in the Cicero area.
Ashley B.
Work been super stressful because I’m on my feet 10 hours a day. Everything was tight. I got a massage from Crystin and I didn’t even have to tell her really what areas to aim at because she already was working on my lower back. Even tho I know her, I felt absolutely comfortable because the atmosphere was soothing. Conversation was flowing and at the end I felt so light! Next time she’s going to stretch me, so she accommodates all my needs 💗 this therapy is in my to do list every month!! Definitely would recommend you won’t regret it!!

I had been interviewing therapist for a month trying to find the right fit for me and came across Carol Kruse from Thervo.com. Her first email immediately addressed my current concerns and after my first session I felt comfort in her and guidance. She made me truly feel that she cared and has my best interest at heart. I am now looking forward to my session and the tools she will be providing to become the best version of me. ♥️☺️♥️

Testimonial for Joanne Barian: What I love about Joanne is that she is the “real deal”. When she speaks about her passion for assisting others in the powerful process of transforming their lives, she comes from a place of deep knowing and experience on both a personal and professional level. She embodies deep compassion and has numerous skills and tools for guiding others from a place of frustration and pain into alignment with their unique talents and gifts. Her credo is that “it’s never too late to be what you were meant to become”, and Joanne understands that when a person makes the courageous decision to step forward into changing their life they desire to feel a sense of support, stability and safety. She provides a container of safety and support that allows her clients to open to reconnecting with their spirit self in order to end their struggles, heal their wounds and love themselves as the amazing and unique person that they are meant to be. ~Catherine L., Minneapolis, MN
